10 Taiwan street foods that you can find in S’pore so good, you don’t need to go back to Taiwan

Getting to devour all the delectable Taiwan street food is one of the biggest reasons why anyone would want to visit the land of smiles – quite literally since everyone is just so friendly there. However, we don’t always get the opportunity to travel since that requires a truckload of time and moolah, and we don’t always have these resources whenever we need them.

If you are one who wants to relive the experience through feasting on some Taiwan street snacks and curating your own version of their night markets, well, here are some places you can enjoy the street food which will make you feel like you are back in Taiwan again. That said, someone seriously needs to bring the Cheese Baked Potato and Flame Grilled Beef Cubes to Singapore!

Taiwan Orh Lua – 8 Degrees Taiwanese Bistro
Even though Oyster Omelettes, or better known as Orh Lua is fairly well known in Singapore, the ones sold in Taiwan are slightly different – less oily and generously drenched with their special sauce that makes the whole dish less cloying – also why we always can’t get enough of this when in Taiwan. Good news as you can also find authentic Taiwanese Orh Lua here in Singapore – right at 8 Degrees Taiwanese Bistro!

This is it – Taiwan’s very own fried chicken cutlet right in the heart of Singapore. When you head over to Taiwan, you will also be able to spot a train of queue at their Hot Star Large Fried Chicken outlet at Xi Men Ding – juicy, deep-fried chicken cutlet whose size is even bigger than your head – no kidding.

Grilled Mochi – Oki Machi
Many people might not have seen this in Xi Men Ding, but many tourists still do flock there for the coveted Grilled Mochi – located right beside the stall selling flame grilled beef cubes and cheesy potato. The gelatinous mochi, coupled with an addictive dollop of condense milk is what will set your day right. Their cheesy grilled mochi option is pretty good too!

Crispy Floss Egg Roll – Shi Lin Taiwan Street Snacks
If you know the existence of Yong He Dou Jiang (永和豆浆) at Xi Men Ding, you might also have heard of their Crispy Floss Egg Roll which have garnered many raving reviews. Other than their fried chicken, many people also love the Crisopy Floss Egg Roll which we feel is seriously underrated!

Pearl Milk Tea
I’m not sure about you, but the first time I went to Taiwan, I had my best bubble tea experience at Coco Fresh Juice and Tea. They used to have a stall here in Singapore (or still do, I’m not too sure) but in any case, you now get bubble tea at almost any location in Singapore – Agantea (one of the more authentic Taiwanese bubble tea stores), Share Tea, Koi or even GongCha.
